Banning foreign works has now become "a very important part of our overall national security." What?????!!

Outrageous!

So, what's really at work here? I mean, other than W's seemingly endless need to consolidate power (much like his buddy Putin, eh?), where's the strategy in this? Might these authors be critical of this country as well as their own?

Good question, Joe. It completely baffles me. What could Americans gain from these foreign works? Among other things, perhaps a more truthful perspective of these "enemies" than what the government would like to feed us. It's highly suspect.

Oh, that makes sense, Katrina. Keep the message close.

Very suspect. And sad.
